The Ultimate Holiday Playlist

Music is a big part of my life (I’ve played classic piano since I was 5) and I’m sure everyone else’s during the holiday season. It sets the mood, creates a cozy ambiance and brings back wonderful memories of Christmas pasts. Every time I turn on Christmas music, my demeanor changes. I begin to feel calm, joyful, and more at peace. Don’t you? Music is powerful and we all know that the right playlist is crucial. Because I love my followers, I have spent hours narrowing down songs and created The Ultimate Christmas Playlist. These are my absolute favorite holiday songs and I hope you love them as much as I do. Head to iTunes or Spotify to download or click on the title below to listen. Enjoy!

I’m a PNW (Pacific Northwest) girl and this has always been one of my favorite songs! I grew up in Washington so it has a VERY special place in my heart. It’s an oldie but goodie for me for sure (song came out in 1987 I think). Hope you like it too!
